Extremists target Ofsted over faith schools ruling

The chief inspector of schools has accused hard-left activists and religious extremists of trying to stop her clampdown on illegal Muslim schools with a campaign of intimidation.

Amanda Spielman revealed that one of Ofsted’s regional offices has been forced to take additional security measures after inspectors were repeatedly sent extreme Islamic literature. She has also been targeted and received one threatening email claiming that hardline Islamists know where she lives, after Ofsted won a court case against an Islamic school that segregated girls from boys.

References to her private home address in London, which could be found online, were subsequently removed as a precaution.

  2. Prevention is a great approach to health, but worryingly, is gaining an increasing emphasis when it comes to crime. The article talks about measures to protect ofsted property and personnel but there is no reference to what the police are doing to go after these extremist yobs. We seem to be lapsing into a state of accepting anti social, anti community behaviour, as long as we can protect ourselves from it. The flip side of being a tolerant society is that we come down very hard on any intolerance, no matter what quarter it comes from.
